The Bobby Patterson Band, a multi-award-winning national touring act from Spokane, WA, is acclaimed as the Inland Empire Blues Society's "Best Blues Band" with Bobby Patterson receiving the IEBS Best Blues Guitarist, Best Male Blues Vocalist, Best Male Blues Performer, and Best Blues Album. BPB performs passionate blues originals written by the lead guitarist and vocalist, a musician who "really feels the music".

Award-winning Percussionist Ken Danielson and IEBS Best Bassist 2016, 2017 Randy Knowles are rock steady “Masters of Rhythm” holding the beat when Bobby’s lead soars. Each is an artist on their guitar, bass, or kit, separating these musicians as top of their class. Audiences are spell-bound listening to the exciting, fast paced blues and Bobby’s improv. Dancers love BPB. When you see their show, you will be entertained from the beginning till the encore at the end...

Bobby Patterson Band
by Carol Austin

Bluesman and singer/songwriter Bobby Fat Tone Patterson delivers original songs and classic blues accompanied by masterful slide guitar and electrifying leads. Patterson's nickname derives from the name of the band he fronted for 13 years, The Fat Tones. He plays electric, acoustic and slide guitar and likes to scat. Scattin, he explained, is singing the same notes that I am playing on my guitar. His hot licks garnered him the Inland Empire Blues Society (IEBS) Best Blues Guitarist award in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2011 and 2012. Those awards led to his induction into the IEBS Hall of Fame. The IEBS helped put me on the map as a blues player, said Patterson.
